Hilary Herbert

Hilary Herbert has been dancing and calling for many years and greatly enjoys both activities. Having started calling at barn dances, PTAs etc in the late 70s, she is now well known nationally as a caller / teacher of a wide breadth of new and old dances in the Playford, Traditional English and American style, including ones of her own composition. She can also be persuaded, without much difficulty, to teach Running set and Sword. She is a regular performer on the English festival, week-end and evening dance circuits and has also ventured across the channel. Her patience and humour are well known throughout the country and she enjoys sharing her wealth of experience with others. She resides in north Lancashire, the county of her birth, and is looking forward to a week in neighbouring Cumbria.

The Holiday:

We want you to relax, socialise, enjoy your Country Dancing and the atmosphere of our Abbot Hall Hotel.  The itinerary for this holiday is intended to balance all of these aims.

The programme for your dancing holiday is planned to give you the maximum amount of dancing tuition, relaxed dancing and free time.

There will be interesting morning dance workshops, with free afternoons and evening of social dancing, so if you do have any particular technique you wish to explore you can ask Hilary for her expert help and advice.

Anyone, from enthusiastic novices to seasoned dancers, will be able to improve their fancy footwork on these fun and friendly Country Dancing holidays.

During the holiday, we will also offer optional local tours
